Mcsorley's Old Ale House - The (second) oldest licensed establishment in New York City, McSorley's is a magical ale house rich in character and in American memorabilia. McSorley's has been the subject of John Sloane paintings and has even lent its name to a book, i.e., Joseph Mitchell's "McSorley's Wonderful Saloon." The pub is a "must visit" for anyone who likes to visit historic places and imbibe a glass of ale in a famous lower east side tavern. Remember, don't think about drinking a Bud while here, they only serve 2 kinds of beer - light and dark. Order it that way.
